Nikola Jokic, C, Denver Nuggets
With so many injuries to key players, Denver will be forced to go to Jokic more often on offense. He is averaging 20.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 9.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.2 turnovers over the past 5 games and there really is no reason why he couldn't keep those numbers with Paul Millsap and Gary Harris both on the shelf.
John Collins, PF, Atlanta Hawks
Collins is looking like a superstar lately, Read More
Marcus Morris, SF/PF, Boston Celtics
Morris is the only legitimate power forward on this Celtics roster and there will be nights where he will get his minutes and roll. He is averaging 14.2 points and 7.2 rebounds a game and while the other stats leaves a lot to be desired (0.8 assists and 0.5 steals + blocks), he already has 13 treys made over the last 7 games.
That said, Morris is much more valuable in points leagues than in Roto and category leagues. If you're playing Rotiserrie or H2H Read More
A two-game slate is usually very tricky but since it's the playoffs, you'll surely have options to round out your NBA playoffs DFS roster. Here are 6 NBA Playoffs DFS Best Value Picks that you may want to look at this Monday night:
LeBron James, SF, Cleveland Cavaliers ($11,300)
"The King" does not rest during this time of the year and since it's just a two-game slate, the pickings are slim. So why not pick the best of them all while we're at it? LeBron had 32-6-13 in Game 1 along Read More
We do want little surprises here and there to spice things up, don't we? However, as fantasy basketball die-hards, surprises are the last things we want. But since it's pretty much a part of our fantasy basketball lives, we might as well deal with it the best way possible.
1. Jrue Holiday and Danny Green's Impact
The Pelicans kinda suck, let's face it, but they would suck a lot more if Jrue Holiday isn't there. Anthony Davis 'may be having a historic, Michael Jordan, Kareem-like season, but Read More
On the rise?
Andrew Wiggins, Minnesota Timberwolves
Wiggins provide the one thing that shooting guards should and that's putting the ball through the hoop. On only his second year in the league, the Canadian wing already ranked No. 5 among two's in scoring (20.7) which is nice. He also has a knack of getting fouled (5th among guards with seven FTA per game), which is, again, very nice. However, he is pedestrian anywhere else and is not exactly someone you'd rely on to supply three-point shooting.

We could not always get what we want, that's a given, but sometimes expectations do hurt. These 5 guys probably did not do your fantasy feelings any favor.
Here are this mid-season's fantasy basketball disappointments:
Danny Green, SG, San Antonio Spurs
Players do play extra hard on contract years and one they sign contracts, that's another story. Sometimes. Such as the case with Green, who was one of the NBA's top shooters and feared perimeter defenders as far back as 2015. All his numbers Read More
November 17, 2015-- Daily Fantasy Basketball Value Picks
Rajon Rondo, PG ($8,700)- Russell Westbrook has the highest DFS potential of ANY point guard in the league but Rajon Rondo isn't too far behind. The volatile point guard averaged 48.6 fantasy points (FP) in the past six games. Rondo and George Karl is clearly seeing eye-to-eye while the other Kings point guard Darren Collison has not played a game yet since November 6.
Paul George, SF ($9,500)- PG13 is the hottest small forward Read More
The NBA is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get until you slip on the wet floor.
Anyway, I couldn't help but feel for the Toronto Raptors. The only team north of the border has turned many heads for their stellar play last season and pundits expected them to do good this year after a little seasoning.
Not this good, though.
The Raptors currently sports a 13-3 record, the best in the Eastern Conference and third overall. A testament to their consistency, there really Read More
